Hi Sarge, I liked your rendition of "Up a Lazy River" and especially your improvisation .i am not a lover of vamping,as I stopped that years ago,but you put it over very nicely.Well Done.Eric33. I would appreciate it if you could play it again without the vamping.

Thanks Vicmale. Then I think straight slide will be easier for me, because of in case of cross slide I have to change or practice a bit on my playing style.

The key is definitely D.

Could be a G harmonica (played in 2. position) or maybe a C-harmonica (played in 3. position).

I'll update that last post a little now that I played around with it a bit.
Seems like G harmonica, so I'm thinking it's in the key of D
(I had the best luck with holes 2 thru 5)

That's how it seems to shape up for me, I'm curious if I'm correct...so 'I may be wrong 'disclaimer...heh

Is this the song,... I had never heard of it before...

I didn't tab it out or anything, but seems he's keeping the rhythm and running his notes on the lower end of the harp
mostly 1 through 4. I think once you get the rhythm going you can add the single notes as your ability allows.
That way you could have fun with the tune and start getting your "chops" together as you go along.

..and of course ..have fun..

Great work Sarge! I especially liked baby face, I haven't heard much vamping on chromatic before.

Looking forward to more.

Hi harpsquealer.

Thanks for your search and reply. I already have this tab to the lyrics of RTTJ.
What I am searching for is the brilliant harp solos in between the singing. I could listen to the song and try and 'wing' the solos but would probably never be able to get it right.

Cheers.

Lithy.

Hello

For the cross slide harmonica the notes are laid out differently on the reed plates. Imagine a C harmonica tuning. With the slide out the two first two notes C and D are in the first hole on the upper reed plate and E and F in the second hole are on the lower reed plate In the third hole comes G and A on the upper reed plate and so forth. With the slide pressed in the first two notes are in the first hole are C# and D# and located on the lower reed plate. In the second hole F and F# are located on the upper reed plate etc.
On the straight slide harmonica, however, all the tones are on the upper reed plate when the slide is out and on the lower reed plate when the slide is pressed in.

Thought it was a nightmare, Lo,it`s all so true
6 -6 -6 -6 -6 -6-6 -6 5
They told me, "Don`t go walkin` slow `Cause
6-6 -6 7 -6
Devil`s on the loose,"
Chorus
6 6 6 -6 -6 -6-6
Better Run Through The Jungle
6 6 6 -6 -6 -6-6
Better Run Through The Jungle

Woa, Don`t look back to see

Thought I heard a rumblin` Callin` to my name
Two hundred million guns are loaded
Satan cries "Take aim"
REPEAT CHORUS
3.
Over on the mountain thunder magic spoke
"Let the people know my wisdome
Fill the land with smoke"
REPEAT CHORUS (a few times)

keep on harpsquealin'!

Here's a good old song called Babyface. I had a reed stick right at the end of the song; bummer! I thought I had that reed fixed so it wouldn't do that.

Note layouts are the same, standard solo. Unless you order something else from Seydel, who will make you whatever you want.
Suzuki makes their 12s in a few keys. C D A G I believe. Maybe more.

Then what is the note pattern in a C cross slide harp at slide out and in position?

Secondly, is Scx12 available in different keys like Seydel Deluxe?
